Sophie begs Kate not to do anything that will hurt Jade, and Kate is thrown by her sister's heartfelt plea. But she ultimately decides to go through with her plan, getting ready for the date. However, Kate's plans are scuttled when Kyle cancels the date, choosing instead to go on a trip to Sydney with Jade.
Meanwhile, thrown when Tash turns up on their doorstep, Karl and Summer agree she needs their support. But Tash quickly makes herself a little too at home, infuriating first Summer then Karl.
Although Karl reminds Summer of the need to treat Tash with kindness, he's the one who finally snaps. To his surprise, Tash admits she knows she's hard to live with, and Karl apologises and insists she's welcome to stay, helping Tash farewell her family home.
